7.2 / 10.0 - Toy Soldiers HD
Oct 21, 2021

Toy Soldiers HD is a solid all-around package, though that $30 price point does feel a bit high. If you’re in the market though for some well-made hybrid tower defense, shooter, dogfighter then this plastic battleground should fit the bill. It might be ugly as sin at times, but it is a damned good time reliving an incredibly weird take on one of the darkest conflicts in modern history

The excellent portal system, combined with one of the tightest FPS modules in recent years, makes me believe I'll be playing this a lot as I wait for Halo Infinite to drop. And, frankly? I'm not even that certain 343's much-awaited title will have Splitgate beaten in all aspects. It is simply that good.

5.8 / 10.0 - Into the Pit
Oct 20, 2021

Into The Pit has some genuine fun in it. It controls well, has a unique look, and has great potential with its rogue-lite offerings. In the end though for me, the lack of variety in multiple areas kept it from being something I could recommend except for the fact that it’s on Game Pass. For free (if you’re already an existing member) it’s a no-brainer to give this one a try if anything you’ve seen about it has caught your eye. After all, the only cost will be a little bit of your time.

8.4 / 10.0 - NHL 22
Oct 15, 2021

If you love the sport and want the best looking and playing a version of it of all-time along with a staggering number of modes and options, then I think NHL 22 is going to make you quite happy.

If you have never had the pleasure of playing through Crysis at all, then not only will you be treated to eye candy in abundance, but the stories of all three are surprisingly well told and intriguing. Whilst the online multiplayer is absent from this collection and this made me more than a little disappointed, just being able to replay these games in all their glory once more made this trilogy worth every penny. For newcomers and veterans of Crysis , it is a must buy.

8.8 / 10.0 - The Riftbreaker
Oct 14, 2021

It is such a wild mix of incredibly deep base building with light tower defense, and excellent twin-stick shooting. The type of game idea that you smack your head and go “of course, this is brilliant”.

If you're looking for a hardcore shooter that relishes realism then you absolutely must buy Insurgency Sandstorm. For the price point, it is more than worth it for the amount of content on offer here with more on the way in 2022. If you played the recent Hell Let Loose and its vast and complicated experience wasn't for you, then this game might be right up your street. For me, it is a game I will dip into on occasion but for veterans of shooter titles, you may see hundreds of hours of fun here. A game that is fantastic fun alone or with friends with no HUD and instant time to kill authentic hardcore warfare is well worthy of your time.

In conclusion, due to its origin and the number of words constantly displayed on screen Disco Elysium – The Final Cut sometimes comes across more as a visual novel than anything else. It is rare for a game to have such historical depth and deeply complex narrative and therefore it is very impressive, although it should be stated this is not a game for the faint hearted or something that non-fans of this genre will probably want to take on. Some of the subject matter is fairly grim and destructive behaviour is contained within the story but it is not glorified as there are penalties to be paid for activities such as drug use. I cannot think of another game quite like this and can see why the game has been lauded since its original release. If this particular style of game appeals to you it is not one to be missed.

7.2 / 10.0 - Back 4 Blood
Oct 8, 2021

It's a no-brainer to at least check out as it's on Game Pass, but poor controls on console serve as a great detriment to what otherwise can be a really fun time.
